Have you ever experienced a blocked railroad crossing during your travels around Galion and the area? We bet you have.

You can now report that blockage, according to the Ohio Rail Development Commission.

The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) has established a new, dedicated webpage to allow the public and law enforcement to report blocked highway-rail grade crossings. Blocked crossings occur when stopped trains impede the flow of motor vehicle or pedestrian traffic at railroad tracks for extended periods of time.  

The FRA is now seeking broad public input to understand the scope of the problem and engage with affected parties to identify potential solutions.

The purpose of the system, according to the FRA,  is to collect “…this information is to learn where, when, for how long, and what impacts result from blocked highway-rail grade crossings.”
